Q&A w/ Doug #9: Agent and Producer Judy Fox
Today we have a bonus episode for you.  So when we started this adventure into reviewing and interviews folks involved with movie sequels, we had a side agenda of interview everyone who is involved in various roles behind the scenes as well and here is our first one.  We were looking for an interview with an actor involved in Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 and started going back in forth with the agent for  R. A. Mihailoff who played Leatherface.  That agent was Judy Fox and she was so kind in communicating with us to find the time that worked, so we asked her,"Can we interview you about your career?" and she agreed.  Judy didn't start in Hollywood like others and she is the Personal Talent Manager to horror legends plus she's a movie producer too.   Watch next week's movie Ace Ventura Jr on Amazon Prime!

Hosts Doug and Jamie will breakdown this John Hughes film that could also have been called "Rear Window: For Kids."  This movie's got talking parrots, bad guys with guns, and some amazing traps.    Follow us on twitter @sequelsonly so you can tell us your thoughts and follow Doug @dougdietzcomedy  Next week Doug has not 1, but 2 interviews for you.  Lenny von Dohlen who plays Burton Jernigen, one of the four crooks, has been acting for over 35 years and has been so much amazing stuff.  Cult Classics like Electric Dreams and his role as Harold Smith on Twin Peaks.  Lenny was so interesting and had some things in common with Doug which was a great connection early on in the conversation.  Then Doug had the chance to interview  Kevin Kilner who played Jack Pruitt, Alex's Dad.  Kevin was D1 lacrosse national champion at John Hopkins and didn't realize he wanted to act until few years after college, but we are all lucky he decided to.  He was on a great short lived CBS series opposite Nancy Travis called "Almost Perfect."  He is most known for a short scene in "American Pie 2" where he was the dad with the walkie talkies and a Frasier episode called "Roz and the Schnozz."   He has some eye opening stories about his career and really loves what he does.  If you are a looking for a theme song like the one you heard, reach out to Nightlife Audio and ask for James at www.nightlifeaudio.com
